Discuss [Jailbreak 1.1.2] OktoPrep not recognised when running Jailbreak.jar at the iPhone "2G" (Rev. 1) - Hackint0sh.org; Even if you use OktoPrep from Installer.app?

Even if you use OktoPrep from Installer.app?
I'd not rely on OktoPrep form AppSnapp until that's been a proven method..
same issue for me. not recognizing the oktoprep.
FWIW i'm using the iClarified instructions for mac for otb1.1.2.
first i used the ipsw linked on the iClarified site. then i tried the one at iphone.unlock.no. both give the same message when running the 1.1.2 jailbreak .jar.
oktoprep error message: solution!!!
ok, anyone trying to jailbreak a otb 1.1.2 phone with iClarified instructions, and getting the following error:
""Jailbreak failed …. This utility can only be used if you have already run OktoPrep before updating to 1.1.2?"
here's what's missing from the instructions:
After step 22 which completes the 1.1.1 Jailbreak there are several steps missing. You MUST install octoprep. here's how:
1) Once the phone reboots to a Jailbroken state (you can slide to unlock rather than slide to activate), touch the 'Installer' application.
2) At the bottom of the application there are 5 white/gray icons on a black background. touch the one labeled "install"
3) Scroll down to Tweaks (1.1.1) and touch it
4) Touch OktoPrep
After running Oktoprep it will tell you the phone is ready for 1.1.2 Jailbreak. Continue with the iClarified instructions from here.
good luck and happy Jailbreaking.
run older itunes
are you making sure you are running itunes that is less than 7.6?
this is the most important step in the process... the itunes 7.6 keeps the oktoprep from upgrading to 1.1.2!
i got it
Finally, i got it worked.
1. restored to 1.1.1 on my laptop
2. installed OktoPrep from 'tweaks 1.1.1'
3. plugged to laptop again
4. shift+update to 1.1.2
5. replugged, AFTER ITUNES recognised iPhone, killed "iTunesHelper.exe", closed iTunes, i've started jailbreak.jar. But it frozed on 'uploadin Installer.app...'
6. i plugged phone into my PC, then opened iTunes, after recognising, closed iTunes and killed "iTunesHelper.exe", started jailbreak.jar and whoo hoo, i got it worked=)
i do exactly the same problem. working on mac os x and itunes 7.5. unfortunately (or luckily) i don't have a pc. is there any other way round? please help....

Things I tried.
Mac OSX Leopard with iTunes 7.6
Mac OSX Leopard with iTunes 7.5
XP SP2 with iTunes 7.4.3
None of these scenarrios work. I think there is a probem in the octoprep package maybe??? Is there any other source to get that from???
I feel like the biggest idiot, but hope it helps someone anyways,
When going down from 1.1.2, we need to press RESTORE, but when going up from 1.1.1, UPDATE. Now I was pressing restore in both cases, so no matter what octopred did, it was erased with the restore.
Dont be an idiot like myself, press UPDATE when upgrading to 1.1.2 after octoprep.
Works like a charm,
Do exactly what Bence says.
